School Bus Driver Thank You

Hello everyone!  It is the end of the school year here.  Actually tomorrow is a 1/2 day, but that doesn't really count, does it?!  The boys' bus driver is wonderful and he really deserves a thank you for everything that he does (and puts up with!) to keep the kids safe.  This is what we gave him.
At first I was drawing a blank with what to give him, so I went online at Walmart and took advantage of their free 2 day shipping and bought the mug, which I thought was adorable!  I filled it with homemade monster cookies inside the cellophane bag.
For the card, I kept it simple.  It is a 4.25" square card so it still fit inside an A2 envelope.  I used a GMD Slash Stitched Round Square die for the bus paper and die cut the Thanks shadow from Pink and Main out of the middle of it.  That layer is popped up with Scotch foam tape.  I cut the Thanks die out of red cardstock three times and adhered it together to make it have more dimension.
For embellishments, I used Celebration Trendy Twine and some red adhesive pearls.
I hope you have a wonderfully crafty day!
